Has anyone in r-14 experienced loosing your command line....If i hit the
F2 key i can review the history but this appears to be some type of
window that is resizable and goes away also. I want to know how do i get
my command line to reappear at the bottom of the screen. AutoCad R-14

most likely undocked and hidden behind the autocad window or under the
taskbar, try minimizing the autocad window .... change your screen
resolution to find it.

This is called the AutoCAD text Window, its a running history of your
command line entries, normally set to save the last 400 lines of the drawing
session.

move your mouse down to the bottom of the drafting area window. It will
change to a line with an arrow at the top and bottom. You should be able to
resize the command line area, just like you would resize the window areas in
windows explorer.

We have had this happen a couple of times, where, by mistake, someone clicks
and grabs the window bar instead of a command or the panning bars.

Hope it helps!
